Re: [seul-edu] Alternatives to NIS

    I am really frustrated with this NIS stuff. The reason I thought you had to recompile the kernel is that the NIS HOWTO makes casual reference to it. However, it doesn't give details. There is a Makefile in /var/yp, but when I run make in that directory I get error messages that are a total mystery to me. I am totally in the dark about how to make this thing work. 
    All the expensive books I have bought deal very trivially with setting up an NIS server. Is there somewhere a HOWTO or other document that gives _detailed_ instructions on setting up the NIS server?

You don't need to recompile your kernel. The kernel has absolutely nothing
to do with NIS.

In RH7, the RPM you require is kgcc-1.1.2-40.i386.rpm. Not sure about 6.2
any more - I think it's egcs-1.1.2-24.
